Thanksgiving Sandwiches

Just joined Chowhound, so forgive me if I bust any Hound specific etiquette.

The girlfriend and I are planning on taking a short road trip/picnic on Thanksgiving. We'd like to get some primo-Turkey Day sandwiches without cooking up a Turkey Day feast for just two people.

Any tips for where to get a Thanksgiving sandwich on Thanksgiving day? We're willing to travel up to Santa Barbara or down to the southern reaches of OC, perhaps slightly further.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

  1. You will need to do your homework to see if any of these places are actually open when you need them on Thanksgiving Day, or not:

      Pann's will be open on Thanksgiving morning, regular menu from 8am till 1pm, after that just turkey dinners till closing at 5pm.

    2. I haven't been there in a while, but Joe's Cafe in Santa Barbara had good roast turkey sandwiches, see if you can find any recent reviews

      1. Either the "Bobbie" or the "Cran-slam" sounds like what you're looking for. Great back east sandwich chain on the west coast. Enjoy!

          +1 on Capriottis. There are only a few locations in Greater Los Angeles; I've only been to the one in Encino on Ventura near Havenhurst.

          The Bobbie is awesome.
